Since I have a backlog of shows I haven't listened to, and listen to all GD eras, I I don't recall the set-list, unless It is a well known show . Thus, if I don't look at the list I can have that element of surprise, you would get at a show .
Listening to this, frankly uneven, show, (Nice "Sugaree" though) ,
I was surprised by a very nice "Comes A Time," that goes into "Lost Sailor /St. of Cir" . As I was listening to the coda solo, I'm thinking, "What Brent is playing on the Fender Rhodes , sure sound like "Lost Sailor", wouldn't it be interesting if they went into that ," and they did ! They did that one other time (10/280). Now I know that over played in the day, Weir combo hardly get people excited , but It is different from usual .

Actually Comes a Time was linked with Sailor>Saint a few times that year - they did Sailor>Saint>CAT on 5/14, 5/29, and 8/31.

You might try 8/19/80 with a surprise post-drums Playing>Comes a Time>Playing... Oops, gave away the setlist!

I missed those ! I was only looking for LS coming out of CAT . So the connection was already there . I thought it was a nice change to have a slower, more introspective Weir song coming out of the already contemplative CAT, rather than the usual uptempo selection . I can see how for the hight energy folks, 2 "buzz-killers" in a row might not sit well . But "old soul" that I am, I wish more of their show would end on a slow song . Listening to that RFK show (6/9/73) I love how they end the journey with "China Doll ". And save the rocker ( a nice Sugar Mag., in this case ) for the encore ... but I digress .
I don't recall that Playing>CAT>Playing sandwich . I wish they did more of that post drums . I hope I am surprised when I hear it ! ...or rehear it ...
Time to reread all my old books, as I can't remember how they ended ...
